Before the Dust

       Before the Dust

Before the dust became a man,
Before the plants and beasts began,
Before dividing land from seas,
Before the light, the dark, all these,
There lived a hope, a faith, a love,
Devoid below, but crowned above,
Unseen, yet like the wind and breath,
No mortal birth, no mortal death,
Divine and chaste and pure and sweet,
A perfect flame, good-tempered heat,
And when the flesh of man lay still,
The virtues entered through His will.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
